UFC Fighter Joshua Culibao (8-1)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Joshua “Kuya” Culibao is a fun and exciting featherweight prospect in the UFC.

Fighting out of Australia, he is one of several very talented Australians to fight in the biggest fight promotion in the world. He made his UFC debut earlier this year fighting up a weight class against a very tough opponent, Jalin Turner. Culibao ended up losing at UFC Auckland but is looking to bounce back in his real weight class.

Before being signed to the UFC, he went undefeated in his eight fights. The fight that got him into the UFC was a knockout victory against Josh Payne at MMA Superfight 10.

Culibao returns to action for his second UFC fight against Charles Jourdain at UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Aldana on ‘Fight Island’. Australia vs. Canada. A win over Jourdain would be a huge statement for Culibao.

When asked what we should expect from his fight Culibao said, “Expect fireworks!”
